Pixels (2015)Pixels is an alien invasion thriller with childlike sensibilities,… More Pixels is an alien invasion thriller with childlike sensibilities, which makes little sense since the only people who can appreciate 80's arcade games are all adults now. Also, it's just not funny. The inherit problem is that it doesn't seem to please any demographic. 90% of the humor doesn't appeal to a mature audience, (or anyone with a decent sense of humor) also the story and characterization of cast members much too basic to receive any sort of commendable phrase. Yet if it were a children's film a lot of the rudimentary themes and formulas used would be acceptable, but we're constantly reminded that this is in fact adult entertainment. Pixels isn't devoid of creativity and paints an original premise but fails in recognizing the audience that it's meant to capture culturally. Terms and ideas used in the movie are simply dated. Nerd as a derogatory term? Being good at video games is a waste of time? It's 2015, nerds are the new cool and we have e-sports with Pro gamers earning millions in winnings. It's pretty obvious that the idiots behind this project were just attempting to cash in on the geeky pop culture surge of recent but have no idea what the surge is actually about. If you're looking for sparkly visuals on the movie screen, sure it might be worth a bit of your time but all in all Pixels is an out of touch would-be children's film mired with irrelevant adult themes and lazy acting by Sandler, squandering the efforts of his talented co-stars.
